A Healthy Salad!

Well, reasonably healthy (there’s not that much bacon).  Here’s a quick and easy salad that’s sure to please.

Broccoli Cranberry Salad

6 strips of bacon
1 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup of white sugar
2 Tablespoons of red wine vinegar
3 heads of brocolli, finely chopped
1/2 cup of chopped red onion
1/3 cup of salted sunflower kernals, toasted
1/4 cup of dried cranberries

1. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned (about 10 minutes).  Drain bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.

2. Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl; refrigerate until ready to combine with the salad.

3. Combine the broccoli, onion, bacon, sunflower seeds, and cranberries in a large bowl.  Drizzle the mayonnaise dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss to coat.
